I ask way too many questions of my friends, family, and people in my general vicinity so I thought I'd take it to the next level and unintentionally harass people online.

comment Where to find drawer box components?
Thanks Tester. Do you know of a source for detailed instructions on doing it the old fashioned way? A lot of carpentry instructions I've come across throw out terminology for cuts and tools that make it seem like you have to be a carpenter to understand.

comment Where to find drawer box components?
Thanks again shirlock. I suspect that my cabinets were custom made at least 30 years ago so I don't think I could get boxes from the manufacturer. I'm not averse to building my own (heck, I took woodshop in 8th grade ;) but the notion of doing it without the right tools seems daunting. It seems that I'd have to spend about $300 to get something that will last though that could pay for itself over time.

comment How should I go about fixing a holey laundry room?
I hadn't thought of the humid air going into the crawl space! What if I were to close off that intake vent and just rely on the others around my foundation? Would you still favor the roof vent?

Its a protective cover for the crawl space. I presume it is for crawl space ventilation and to also block rodents. The vent itself has a flap which I think would deter them as well.

shirlock: Originally, outlet wiring in those rooms went through the fixture wiring and came from the attic. I didn't like that so was going to come from the crawl space for the outlets.

:) I did drop a pretty good paint scraper back there once. Oh well.
